I have been looking for ways to support my family's digestive system lately. While discussing it with a friend, she reminded me about some herbs and spices that would do the trick. The problem I have with this is how do I get my family to eat them. I spoke to her again and this time she suggested candies. I"m not excited by this idea but eventually I realized I could make my own.
I'm not sure what my family will like, so I have decided to make 3 different types of candies. One is a gum, one a chew and the last a hard candy. I will share one recipe today and the other two in future posts.
After looking over all the herbs and spices, I have decided to start with mint. To soften the flavor for my preschooler, I am going to add lime to it. Here is the gum recipe I used:
Ingredients:6 oz beeswax
mint essential oil
lime essential oil
